Cancel John Fund


Since the LOC does not list the photographer I can assume Arthur C. Pillsbury took the photo.

by Melinda Pillsbury-Foster 



John Fund never disappoints me.  In this instance he states that the National Park Service was founded “Last week,” meaning in 1920.  But the founding date was August 26, 1916.  Fund then defends John Muir, an action with which I agree as I was aware after dodging service in the Civil War in Canada, he eventually discovered First Nations people were like everyone else. 

Certainly, Muir would have objected to burning out the Miwuk, the First Nation people of Yosemite, in 1869, much less when the National Park Service burned out the last Miwuk living there, Jay Johnson, in 1969.  The Sierra Club said nothing. 

I interviewed Johnson at his home in 2017.  That is what he said, and he was there. 

The National Park Service also continues to stall on the decision the Miwuk be allowed to have land for their use in Yosemite Valley.  Last time, the NPS demand was that the Miwuk conform with building codes.  How do you do that when the whole point is recreating their living heritage?  I follow these amazing idiocies on our newsletter, IMAGE. 

Was Muir appropriate on all issues?  No. But he would have gotten that one right.  This raised the question of how we identify those who should be reassessed.  We need to add the National Park Service as well as the psychopath who founded the government agency, Stephen T. Mather.  Mather represents a fond ideal for elites as he never earned an honest dollar in his life and managed, with much assistance, a century long cover-up.  Mather was the consummate self-dealer, first in the private sector then moving up to Federal.  Do you imagine the Sierra Club was unaware of the facts?  Not credible. 

Did the National Park Service object to the taking of the Hetch Hetchy?  Nope. 

 A read of the books written by former rangers reveals much disenchantment, and to this we must add a dialog on how to allow people to apply proven approaches to preserving the environment while making our wild places visible to millions.  Do you think government should be involved?  I vote NO.

Note there was no objection voiced by the Sierra Club in 1969, either; Muir died in 1914.

Fund’s article was, as usual, filled with evasions and quotes from others since he really knows little about anything.  His career in journalism came via hiring to limit and manicure what we think.  This was noted during his internship at Evans and Novak in 1983.  They decided he was perfect for the Wall Street Journal.  

The assertion Muir, an outspoken Preservationist, ‘founded’ the Sierra Club is a fiction marketed by the people who carefully hide behind the scenes, an early chapter on how the Elites manage what we know. It was their families who were responsible for incorporating the Sierra Club in 1892.  Charter Members   No, it was never intended to be a club for hiking.  And those early High Trips were an extension of the High Life those people have grown accustomed to after raping the environment in California to extract their fortunes. 

Muir was a Preservationist; most of the founding members of the Sierra Club were Conservationists.

These same people, today, are the elitists who buy NeoCons like John Fund. 

The Sierra Club persuaded Muir to become the President but he occupied the office; others controlled the operations.  The organization was started to ensure real estate interests and the emerging elites, descended from people Muir despised, mentioned in the Fund article as, “The white population, the people who were invading — the frontier types, the miners — he thought they were uncouth, savage, brutal, dirty, given over to alcohol. His (Muir’s) writings are full of those descriptions.”

This characterization was mostly accurate.  But those being described, most of them white, are the progenitors of the elite’s of San Francisco today.  Pelosi, Brown, Getty and Newsom are just four of their descendants.

Where did you imagine the ‘elites’ came from?  They learned their ethics and humanity from their parents, who had thoroughly demonstrated their values. 

It is not the ordinary white population who came up with the idea of enticing Muir to head up the Sierra Club, an earlier generation of the uncouth named handled that; their motivation was to either shut Muir up, or, get him to support obtaining the Hetch Hetchy Valley as a water supply for San Francisco.  Failing that, they needed to control him while this was handled.    

When the time came, and they knew it would, Muir needed to trust them.  This worked perfectly, they had been glamping together for years. 

The short story goes like this:

The San Francisco Earthquake and Fire takes place on April 18, 1906.  Due to the incompetence of these same elites, the first disaster gains in magnitude because no thought has been expended on preparing for any disaster at all.  The dumb idea of using dynamite to blow up buildings, spreading the fire is carried out with elite hires in charge. 

To date, no one knows how many people died of the earthquake, an act of nature; and how many died of elite incompetence. 

The first thought in the minds of the elites was not relief for those left without food or housing, but, “Hey!  Now we’ll have the political clout to get the Hetch Hetchy!”

Muir had previously resisted the attempts of Gifford Pinchot, the first head of the Division of Forestry, appointed by President William McKinley, in 1898, to persuade him to the position of Conservationist, meaning, “we keep it until we want to use it, and sooner rather than later.”  Muir would always be a Preservationist, meaning, “We leave it as God made it.  Look and leave.”  There are longer definitions but those will do for now. 

Pinchot’s family was in the lumber business.

Note that the Sierra Club began describing Muir as a ‘Conservationist’ as soon as he was safely dead in December 1914, and the campaign to grab Hetch Hetchy barely waited until the fires had burned down in San Francisco. 

Muir was galvanized into action.  He lectured, wrote letters, argued, and did all in his power to stop the theft of Hetch Hetchy. 

But the elites were ready; the Sierra Club had been founded for this moment in time.   

Muir spoke to true believers, the public, and small groups across the country.  One man talking, no major media.  But the decision hinged on the coming election for President.  Woodrow Wilson had promised to give San Francisco the Hetch Hetchy – if he won. 

The elites of California delivered the state for Wilson. 

My grandfather, Arthur C. Pillsbury, was a Preservationist.  He first met Muir on board the Harrison Expedition in port in late 1899 and took a photo of Muir.  This was published the next year, credit to Pillsbury, in Camera Craft, a journal on photography launched in early 1900.  

The two shared a passion for Yosemite and for the flowers.   In 1909 Pillsbury went into rapid action mode and made the first nature movie; he began showing it to groups in Yosemite by 1910.  Pillsbury offered to make copies for Muir to use with his lectures to bring in larger audiences.  But movies were not yet respectable.  William Colby, executive director for the Sierra Club and Muir’s ‘assistant’, thought it unwise to use movies.  He was also unenthusiastic about having Pillsbury’s photos used in Muir’s upcoming book.  Muir held firm on this, however.  Pillsbury’s photos were used for, “The Yosemite.”

A wonderful gift had been arranged for Muir; in honor of the insights and inspiration he had provided.  An anonymous benefactor had arranged a trip for Muir; it was like a dream come true for John Muir.  The Benefactor, who insisted on remaining anonymous, had planned a trip for him first to South America for a journey up the Amazon, and then on to Africa.  These were places he had wanted to see all his life.  And if that did not kill him, well it would be too late to stop them.   Muir was right that the Sierra Club had all well in hand, but he was wrong about their plans. 

The elites were salivating over the idea of municipal water and private electric power galore and the money that would flow into their coffers from taxes, power, and water.  And all it took was destroying the Hetch Hetchy Valley, the other Yosemite within the National Park. 

Muir took ship in Brooklyn, NY Leaving in August 1911, effectively cutting off all communications on what was happening at home in America.  When Muir stepped off the ship on March 27, 1912, he learned the Hetch Hetchy had been lost. 

Muir died in a Los Angeles hospital on December 24, 1914, his heart broken.    

Muir’s memoirs of his trip would not be published for decades, and The Yosemite would not be republished for a half century.  And when it was, the Pillsbury photos were not included. 

Pillsbury had demonstrated the power of film and the elites had experienced the impact.  He was a problem they knew they would have to eliminate. 

The effectiveness of film was proved by Pillsbury in 1912 when he showed his newly invented and filmed lapse-time film of wildflowers. From seed to death, the gathered Superintendents of all the National Parks viewed this at their annual conference, that year held in October.  They immediately voted to stop mowing the meadows for fodder for their horses.  Seeing the film persuaded them. 

The National Press Club viewed one of Pillsbury’s films in October of 1915.

By 1919 Pillsbury Picture Company nature films had been licensed for global distribution by Pathé, Universal and Paramount.  Motion pictures had proved their power.  In 1926 he was asked to make a presentation to then President Calvin Coolidge and 70 of his closest friends at the Willard Hotel banquet room.

But this article is not about dumping icons; it is about being more discerning about which icons should be dumped, and why. 

Today we are divided Left and Right but the squirrely things we are encouraged to argue about are intended to keep us busy fighting each other and ignoring the elites who continue to reduce us further into absolute serfdom.

Therefore, you need to take a hard look at what you think you know and revise your assessments.  Fund’s article artfully evaded the real issue, and that is what you should remember.  Fund always injects more issues to divide; never mentioning the truths which bring us together.  That is his job.  Always note the difference between what people and ‘organizations’ say – and what they do.  It matters.

January 16, 2019 - Commenting on John Fund's brain-light opinings

John Fund: An 'informed patriotism?'
Ronald Reagan had only one warning in his 1989 farewell address
Beware of John Fund, Disinformation Minion for the likes of Dick Cheney.  See NeoCons

Is is his usual sappy habit John Fund uses  someone else's words without injecting any thoughts of his own (Likely because he has never had any).  

Ronnie was, without doubt, one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet.  But as governor of California he took up further toward the unholy alliance of government and corporations, central control of everything, than anyone on the Left could have hoped for.  

I quote myself, 

From Ronald Reagan, an Ugly Truth -  "United Republicans of California ("UROC") was founded on April 22, 1963, by then State Senator Joe Shell (see footnote) and Assemblyman Bruce Reagan to promote the candidacy of Senator Barry Goldwater for President of the United States. Many Republicans were disgusted with the corporate agenda adopted by the Rockefeller, big-money brokers who had controlled the Republican Party for so long. UROC's agenda was a real grass-roots campaign that took the ideas of Barry Goldwater directly into the homes and minds of Americans.

The method they adopted was shoe-leather activism. In San Marino alone, 15 groups of UROC members committed to going door to door for a registration drive that changed the make-up of the Republican Party. They went armed with Goldwater literature, two books: "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" by John Stormer and "A Choice Not An Echo" by Phyllis Schafly, and were prepared to talk about ideas. By this means, something like 2 million copies of “None Dare Call It Treason" were sold or given away by Goldwater activists.

UROC did not spend piles of money to enact change. Their activism, however, successfully changed the demographics of the Republican Party, awakening Americans to the ideas Americans had hungered for and encountered through several difference sources.

One of these sources,“Conscience of a Conservative,” by Barry Goldwater, was published in 1960. At that time, the then-rapidly-growing freedom – conservative movement was also fired with enthusiasm for the works of Ayn Rand and science-fiction master Robert Heinlein as well as the works of Rose Wilder Lane and Isabel Patterson.

Other organizations, such as the LA-based Foundation for Economic Education, established in 1946 by Leonard E. Read, and the John Birch Society, founded by "Taft Republican" Robert Welch in1958, promoted the benefits of free-markets and less government. These organizations continue to promote the same ideas today based on the foundations of freedom outlined in America's Founding documents.

Those ideas found fertile ground in the 60s, evoking a shift that continues today."  MORE

Now, about patriotism and our founding documents, posted on the Pittsburgh Post Gazette

It is absolutely true students and the public need to understand civil discourse and the founding documents which laid our our rights as individuals, members of proactive communities. Today our understanding of 'Patriotism' cedes our power to the State, just as the Bellamys intended. 

Unfortunately, it has been a long time since public schools taught directly from those documents, the Declaration of Independence, The Articles of Confederation (1781), The Constitution, The Federalist Papers, the Anti-Federalist Papers and the Bill of Rights. When we understand we are, ourselves, the government, then we also accept our responsibility to act when we see the principles of individual rights violated. 

Protest is just one of these obligations. Americans' conception of these began to change when Francis Bellamy wrote the Pledge of Allegiance in 1892 and with his cousin, Edward Bellamy, began their campaign to move to National Socialism in the U.S. This launched the government takeover of education intended to produce an "industrial army" for the authoritarian vision portrayed in his cousin Edward Bellamy's book "Looking Backward." 

The Bellamy cousins promoted National Socialism worldwide for decades. Their plans resulted in racist and segregated government schools that lasted into the 1960's. Studying the founding documents grounds us in individual rights and an economic system which was still largely based on the a Percentage as you earn approach to long term purchases. This made foreclosure on homes extremely rare and brought communities together in hard times.

One Day in the Love Life of a Disinformation Minion January 13, 2002 – John Fund

On January 13, 2002, John Fund is living with Morgan Pillsbury.
Morgan Pillsbury

     Fund's relationship with Morgan began October 26, 1998 in a hotel room in NY.   
    Fund impregnated Morgan during a trip with Fund to New Orleans in January 1999. Abortion Record Procedure March 29, 1999. 
     On the Tape, made by Morgan to convince Melinda she was not lying Fund admits to impregnating Morgan, not helping her, and to other lies he told.  Tape and Transcript
     Fund lived with Morgan  in the apartment in NY in the Rivergate on 34th Street Melinda had rented.  Fund had assured Melinda in January of 2000 he intended marriage.  Melinda closed the apartment in January of 2001.  Fund was routinely making calls to other women from Melinda's phone, which was in the bedroom Melinda used when, as rarely happened, she was in NY.  Phone Bill, January 2001  
      Morgan returned, briefly, to California, flying back to NY in May of 2001.  Fund had asked her to live with him so they could, "work on their relationship."

John Fund
       January 13, 2002 was a busy day at the keyboard for John Fund.  It was Sunday, and the day before Fund made his last-ever appearance on McLaughlin Group. We know this because Eric Garris of said he loved it.  By Eric’s report, McLaughlin told Fund he was lying.  Apparently, McLaughlin did not like liars, which explains it being Fund’s last appearance.

        At 1:03 PM Fund responded to an email sent to him at by Michele Davis of the Department of Treasury.  In her email to Fund, sent at 9:12am, Michele’s subject line had read, “great seeing you last night” Does that sound like a social engagement took place? 
Michele Davis

     Fund’s response included, “I see you are all over the papers now and your boss was on Fox News again.”   Fund is referring to the bankruptcy of Enron, it’s President Lawrence Whalley was pleading with the Treasury Department to intervene with banks extending credit to the collapsing agency.  Michele, as a Treasury spokeswoman, is quoted on Fox News, "Undersecretary Fisher inferred he was being asked to encourage the banks to extend credit" during the six to eight phone conversations he had with Whalley, Davis said. "He made no such calls."  (Those would have been interesting to listen in on.)

       For John Fund, Lothario qua Disinformation Minion for Dick Cheney, the opportunities to find credulous women willing to see him as a friend and possible love interest are numerous; useful tools to Fund.
Gail Heriot

      On Sunday, January 13, 2002, at 10:05PM, another message, subject,”Silly? Yes. But what's a girl to do?”, arrived in Fund’s email box.  This one immediately was seen by Morgan. She called me, outraged. The silly girl was Gail Heriot, an attorney teaching law at  the University of San Diego, School of Law.  Gail’s email included, “So allow me to introduce myself. I am Gail Heriot, the woman whose hotel room you've found yourself in a few times over the last six weeks.”

         Stay Tuned for Other Days as the story of NeoCons unfolds.

Satan and the Tale of Two Disinformation Imps, John Fund and Karl Rove, Minions-in-Waiting to Dick Cheney

Imp Number One:  John Fund

                                            by Melinda Pillsbury-Foster

Liz Cheney took offense when Christian Bale expressed an entirely understandable sentiment with his, “…thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role.”  It was a tough role and Bale correctly portrayed who Cheney appears to be: two men, one on the outside to be experienced by the world around him; the second understood by the imps and minions who assist him to achieve his real goals.

Satan is well known for disguises which make his evils achievable. 

According to the Wiki, “Satan, also known as the Devil, is an entity in the Abrahamic religions that seduces humans into sin or falsehood.”  Evil inclination is universally ascribed to the iconic persona of Satan; Cheney’s “evil inclinations,” are too obvious to be overlooked when his motives are understood; but the screen of fear he used to install the surveillance state, delayed this awareness. Today, over 50% of Americans do not believe the story pushed by the Cheney – Bush White House to explain September 11, 2001.  
The attributes of Satan are with us every day in people who seek power only for their own ends.  But the science of neurobiology has increased our understanding enormously.  

His invading foreign countries with the intention of stealing their oil for his buddies, under cover of the power entrusted to the President of the United States, strikes me as a remarkably good comparison of the two entities, Dick and Satan.  Water-boarding is sort of an also ran, horrid as it is.  The reality of what happened to millions in Iraq was remarkably like Fire and Brimstone, as Dick’s Shock and Awe assault included depleted uranium, likely as a favor to companies unable to find a profitable sale outlet for their DU.  Liz’s dad ensured his buddies could make a profit on poisoning children as yet unconceived.  

I’m sure Satan would be envious at this efficiency for evil,  so I was struck by the accuracy of Bale’s analogy;  however, it was personal events which brought the reality of Cheney to my attention.

In October 1999, my natural daughter, Morgan Pillsbury, called me.  I had not spoken to her since March 1998, when I, along with everyone else in the family, had severed all relations.  Why?  Because I had discovered Morgan had tried to persuade me to turn off my son Arthur’s life support on the lie, she needed his heart.  She had told me she needed a heart transplant.  Morgan had been paid $10,000 by my then husband, Craig Franklin for this and was also receiving $5,000 a month to assist him in the divorce he had filed against me on January 1st.  Morgan had no heart problems of the kind which had taken both of my sisters by 1994.  Through discovery in court, I became aware of these payments.

The divorce was personal, but as it turned out would eventually lead to relevant insights on 9/11, the Invasion of Iraq, keeping Saddam in country in 2002, the rise of the Attack Drone Industry and Surveillance State.  Craig and his boss, Dan O’Dowd, were put in touch with Dick Cheney, it appears, soon after Morgan jumped into bed with John Fund on October 26, 1998.  READ

Both my husband and Morgan are psychopathic.  Looking for answers, I would follow the development of Neuroscience, beginning some years later; but in 1999, this did not exist.  In 2011, I wrote, When Psychopaths Cooperate.  Also look over Characteristics of Psychopathy.
I knew nothing about what Morgan was up to, when Fund and Morgan hopped into bed.  It was not until 2012, I accepted Morgan was also a psychopath.  

In 2002, I still believed Morgan could change, though I remained cautious.  Morgan was required to provide proof for what she told me.  This was the reason Morgan made the Tape in early October, 1999.  The voice of John Fund is very recognizable as Fund tells Morgan why her promise not to talk to me, was important to him.  I already knew too much about his activities for planting disinformation, and concealing information. 

So, in early December 2002, I had to hear Morgan being battered to believe her.  But I did hear this taking place, as did Eric Buchanan, who Morgan had gotten to know on Free Republic, an online chatroom for NeoCon Patriot types.  Battery     Kicked off Free Republic
Cheney had ordered Fund regarding Morgan and myself, “take any steps necessary to solve the problem.”  Fund was following orders.  Either the Cheney family is more ignorant than is believable to me; or they are part of the Cheney-NeoCon cover-up; judge for yourself.    
Satan must have his Imps. 

The first hurdle Satan faced was recruiting his special Imps, which today we also call Minions.  Minions or Imps come in all kinds, and with a range of abilities.  But most important are those who must remain visible to the public, often in respected and seemingly independent positions, such as journalists.  Was Fund Cheney’s most important Minion?  Certainly, he came close. But Cheney needed Imps and Minions who worked well together.  It is likely his two most important Imps were John Fund for Media, and Karl Rove for ‘electoral issues,’ though this did not mean the two could not help each other in their areas of specialization, especially where these met in common ground.   

You might remember Fund from his insane and off point attacks on Bill Clinton in the 1990s; this fell silent in the 2000s.  This is not to say I was a Clinton supporter, then or now, I wasn’t.  But I did, and still demand honesty from those who serve us as employees in government. We, the people, are the government. 

Barry Goldwater held those values, as did others both on the “Left” and the “Right.”  A NeoCon is not a ‘new kind of conservative.’  A NeoCon is a fascist who installs business – government ‘partnerships.’ 

Goldwater was pro-choice; he didn’t think you had to be straight to shoot straight, welcoming gays into our military.  He thought polluters were to be held accountable for the damage they do to people and property.  And Barry supported the Equal Rights Amendment, which remains to be ratified today. 

Dick Cheney does not deserve respect, but condemnation.  His campaign to lie us into Iraq was treason to our country, and a crime against humanity.  To accomplish this, ‘Dick’ depended on the cooperative efforts of minions while he set up the surveillance state we see today.

Fund was, and remains, one of those minions, though now much deflated in importance.    Fund used to call me in attempts to plant outrageous stories about Clinton.  The glee in his voice was striking.  Just that made it impossible to believe “Bill Clinton had an American flag tattooed on his penis”  -- this being the least outlandish fable Fund tried on me. 

Fund was a multipurpose minion, one who would ensure which stories ran and which did not.  That is why he was at the Wall Street Journal.  Just as Satan needs his Imps, NeoCons need their minions.  

Fund was diligent in finding outlets for stories the WSJ would not run.  When Manny Klausner introduced Fund and Matt Drudge in 1993; this was the partnership which they had in mind.  Manny testified to these facts in deposition. 

So, when Fund ran into trouble, he knew he could depend on Cheney to exert his power.     
What does, “do whatever is necessary,” mean to someone who would not blink at killing millions, and leaving unborn babies to die hideous deaths a decade and more later? 
Understanding what happened in this case of domestic violence provides insight. 

I believe Dick Cheney suborned the legal system in NY to keep his imp, John Fund, in place.  This was not without consequences for Fund.  He was fired from the WSJ and removed from their Editorial Board.  Fund received a letter from Fidelity Financial helpfully informing him he needed to move his 401K.  Letter  

Thereafter Fund worked for Dow Jones.  The Fidelity Letter was mailed to Fund at his apartment in Jersey City.  Fund took the letter with him to Morgan’s apartment at 60 East 9th Street in Manhattan where he screamed, waving it about and then deposited it on her floor.  After Fund left for work the next morning, Morgan scanned it, emailing it to me. 
Morgan had learned I would not trust her, unless I saw the proof, because our family had long since realized Morgan lied continuously.

Morgan did not tell me what was happening in NY.  I thought she was getting on with her life after leaving Fund on January 19th, a month earlier.  This hopeful delusion died when I was less than five minutes from the apartment and called to let Morgan know I when I would be arriving.  In the background, I could hear Fund yelling.  I walked in to find Morgan’s face bloodied; she was doubled over in pain.  But she would not call the police and was terrified at the suggestion I take her to the hospital.  She also refused to file a police report for two days, finally agreeing to do so on February 21.  I watched through the broken wainscoting as photos were taken of her injuries which were visible.  The police report reflects this evidence was obtained.  

Curiously, the photos evaporated soon afterward.  The police claimed none were taken, despite the note on the report and my having seen this take place.  Then the report appeared on American Politics Journal, edited by Gene Gaudette.  Gene had contacted Morgan, and they had begun to chat. Gene, who I met while in NY, helped me persuade Morgan to file the police report. 

To that point, the system worked.  Fund was arrested as he hid in the men’s room at the Manhattan Institute on February 24.  The arrest was published on Page Six which was a column in the New York Post.  ARTICLE

Then, it all changed.  I had returned to California where Morgan called to tell me she was asked to come in for an interview by the District Attorney of Manhattan.  This lasted six hours, she told me.  She was not allowed to go to the bathroom or have a drink of water.  The original Assistant DA assigned, Eric Arnone, had been replaced by a woman who grilled her like she was being charged with multiple murders. 

I was never contacted to provide my witness statement, then or later, despite multiple calls. 
It was terrifying.  What had happened to our justice system?  The short answer is Dick Cheney, who needed his Fund Imp working.  Morgan told me she talked briefly to Arnone, who told her District Attorney Robert Morganthau kept the file on his own desk.  No one else was permitted to touch it. 

At the same time, a bipartisan, cooperative effort of ‘neoliberals’ and ‘neocons’ hit the media with a disinformation campaign aimed at me. 

Eric Alterman, a supposed ‘liberal’ ran a short blurb, entirely unsourced, saying I sent Morgan to NY to seduce Fund, poor sad little minion.  Did The Nation Magazine, where this libel ran, check his sources?  Or call me?  No, never, nor did they respond to my calls and letters objecting to this blatant lie.

115 words by Eric Alterman and John Fund as they actually were published:
“John Fund
has landed on Page Six in a bizarre tale that is almost too weird to write down. It seems that a woman with whom Fund had an affair twenty years ago named
Melinda Pillsbury Foster
sent her daughter,
, to look up Fund when she came to town. One thing led to another and the results appear to have been a live-in relationship and an abortion. This is strange enough for a Wall Street Journal editorial writer who, although very much a gentleman in person, penned some of the most vicious and irresponsible material about Clinton and the Democrats outside the columns of this magazine. (Fund is also a ghostwriter for
Rush Limbaugh”
End of quote, actual format.

The facts bear no relationship to what had previously been published by John Connolly at weaselsearch on September 4, 2001; in the Washington Post on January 17, 2002, Sex, Lies and the Audiotape;  in Page Six on February 24, 2002, "COLUMNIST ASSAULTED HIS EX: COPS”;  what Alterman wrote and The Nation published. 

All the previous articles cited published sources or researched their statements, as is normal for journalists.  And the truth is far more bizarre than this snide lie.  For the full story visit Morgan Pillsbury Gell

In 1999, I very I briefly hoped Morgan had started telling the truth.  1999 was the year Morgan produced The Tape.  This recording of Morgan talking to Fund, misled me because what you hear is Morgan leading Fund through a conversation with Fund who had presented himself at that moment, his phone number appearing with the beep for call waiting on Morgan’s phone. Morgan had just told me she had aborted Fund’s baby the previous March.  I refused to believe her.  You do not need to take my word for it.  Listen to Fund’s own words and voice. Tape or read the Transcript.

Suddenly, I had hope Morgan’s travails had changed her.  Boy was I wrong.  But demanding proof did point to some startling revelations.  Included in this was the Clinton’s Capo, Sidney Blumenthal’s role to keep Saddam in Iraq. 

The lying ways of America’s supposedly reliable media is the question here, however.  Between July 2002 and the start of the Invasion in 2003, the reasons for silencing me had increased enormously.

The willingness of a supposed leftist, Alterman, and a supposed ‘liberal’ publication, The Nation, to cooperatively publicize a lie demanded by the first name on John Fund’s speed dial, Dick Cheney, would be news to most people, even today.  But The Nation, Fox News and NewsMax all participated in the cover-up not just so Fund could continue Imping for Cheney, but to cover-up the cooperative efforts of the NeoCons, both Cheney and the Clintons for the invasion of Iraq.   Did these publications and their management know this, or were they told some other story?   Today, they still refuse to respond to my letters. 

In 2003, after the invasion was safely launched, Cheney and company, who now knew an unanticipated complication had arisen, went after me again.  This does not make you feel popular, rest assured.  Now, the use of the previous blurb in The Nation became the basis of a far larger attack intended to completely destroy my credibility and leave me destitute. 
Curious?  Want to know? You will find out while participating on your smart phone with NeoCons – The Show, the 2-Way Interactive TV Series, a coming attraction. 

Satan is out of office now, but the system of pseudo-journalists, including Alterman, Fund, and even the far less prominent Wendy McElroy, remain.  Perhaps the character of Little Liz will be included, I am sure that would be fun for her. 

Read the Media Story

The full saga, in which you can weight in, will air as the first Docu-Dramedy on 2-Way Interactive TV, NeoCons, launching soon! 

Next:  Imp Number Two:  Karl Rove

About: Melinda was the first County Chair of the Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County, Southern California Vice-Chair for the Libertarian Party of California for six terms and ran an office for Southern California on Westwood Blvd. in Westwood for four years.  No dues money was used to fund the office, which was paid for by voluntary support of activists.  When it was clear the LP was having issues with the challenge of success I left and re-registered Republican to learn how a political party which won elections worked from the inside.  

Surprise.  It had been the women, most through the National Federation of  Republican Women, who did the work.  I joined, having been impressed by their sense of community and success rate.  Then Melinda again moved on to  other ventures, one of which is Freedom Interactive TV Networks Association.
